" Before I started at Mind to Muscle, strength and conditioning was an element that I was greatly lacking. I always found myself a step behind both in the gym and on the ice.

I couldn't be more thankful that Mind to Muscle not only continually challenges me to get better, but has also equipped me with the tools I need in order to compete with the best female hockey players in the world!"

Lucas Chiodo, Professional Hockey Player

quotes

" Going to the gym used to be a daunting task; something I just wanted to get over and done with. This changed when I turned 15 and I joined Mind to Muscle's Hockey Program. With the help of Coach Greg and the other coaches, I learned how to train properly and ultimately address my sport-specific goals. Not only did Coach Greg help me from a Strength & Conditioning perspective, but also provided me with nutritional support and a recovery/treatment plan. Following my Bantam season, I felt more and more comfortable in the gym and enjoyed coming to workout because I had a plan and precise goals set in place. This support & structure established at Mind to Muscle motivated me everyday to get better. I proceeded to have my best season to date and got drafted in the 2nd round by the Ottawa 67's (OHL)! I continue to workout at Mind to Muscle because the great staff care about my athletic and personal development. Thank you for all the help and support, and look forward to my next offseason!" - Alec Belanger, Athlete (OHL-Ottawa 67s)"

Grace G.

quotes

" As a figure skater, I know that nutrition is important. Last summer I went to see the M2M Sports Nutritionist, Greg, so he could help me get ready for university. We looked at my daily meals, then we worked on meal planning. I realized I needed more protein. We talked about healthy food choices and we talked about budget. Then we went to the local grocery store and spent two hours going down each row. I learned how to read labels, choose fruits and veggies, look for deals and stay on budget. I've been away from home for 6 months now, and I am a really good shopper. I eat healthy food, and I know that I couldn't have done it without Greg!"

quotes

" Thanks so much for getting me started at Mind to Muscle. It's been a game changer for me. The strength and mobility training I've been receiving have helped even in my daily life. It's amazing the toll life takes on the 46 year old body. LOL This was the first year where I qualified for the Ontario Mid Amateur, Ontario Amateur, Canadian Amateur (all ages including 18/19 year olds attending UCLA and Wake Forest that I played with) and I attribute it to my training at M2M. My actual performance in the events were nothing to brag about but half the battle is just making it into the tournaments. Thanks again and I have to say that all the staff are top notch and are always complementary and very helpful from the front desk to the chiropractors and of course the strength coaches. Awesome!"
